The Prince William Human Rights Student Leadership Council is looking to promote and foster the recognition and appreciation of differences in the community with its annual art contest.
The “Celebrating Diversity Art Competition 2019” is a poster contest open to all high school students in Prince William County public schools, private schools or homeschool students. Students are encouraged to create a poster following the theme Celebrating Diversity.
The goals of the poster contest are to stimulate young people to learn about, reflect on and express what celebrating diversity means to them. It is also meant to encourage young people to educate their communities about diversity and to heighten awareness about the diversity in Prince William County.
Guidelines for posters:
- All posters must be explicitly related to the Celebrating Diversity theme.
- Posters must be submitted as a drawing or painting.
- All posters should be the original work of the artist on 16×20 poster board.
- Writing on posters may be in any language spoken in the artist’s community. Translation must be provided on back.
- Posters must be submitted individually.
Each poster submission must include the following:
- Name, age, school, grade and phone number
- Title of the work
- Brief statement that explains the artist’s and poster’s relation to the theme
- Affirmation signed by the artist that the submission is the artist’s original work
The deadline to submit the posters is Friday, March 15. Submissions must be received by 4:30 p.m. at the Prince William Human Rights Commission in the Dr. A.J. Ferlazzo Building, 15941 Donald Curtis Drive, Suite 125, Woodbridge, Va. 22191.
